WE have many tapes put on reserve for students to view here at Media
Services rather than having to take up class time, as well as seminars that
have been taped for our Work Experience students. Also, our language lab
doesn't have space for video viewing so students come over here for their
assigned "Destinos" viewing. However, we will not keep sign-in sheets for
different classes. Instead, it is the student's responsibility to have us
sign-off on their lab sheets or ask us for a generic form that we sign-off.
We don't see this as a rights of privacy issue, not different than taking
roll call. In my mind it would be entirely different if a public library
were keeping lists of video viewing....
